Venice is renowned for the beauty of its setting, its architecture, and its artworks. The city in its entirety is listed as a World Heritage Site. Make yourself ready for crowded streets and even more crowded water buses. The city has stunning Architecture. Visit the Grand Canal to see boats of all shapes and sizes. See the many Gondoliers and their Gondolas. Visit famous attractions like Rialto bridge , Bridge of sighs , The Piazzo San Marco. Amazing to visit , but not in summer it can be very hot. You don’t need to pay extravagant prices to eat in Venice , use your head and it can be quite affordable. Visit the Island of Murano for Murano Glass….
Situated in the Northern parts of Italy , the City received World Heritage status because of it’s urban structure and architecture. Also seen as the Romantic City , birthplace of lover’s Romeo and Juliet. There is a beautiful Panoramic view of the city from Castel San Pietro(the Castle). Go see a Opera in the Roman Amphitheater , please no cameras… Visit Juliet’s house in Italian called “Casa di Giulietta”. At the entrance is Juliets wall where tourist write love letters on the wall. There is also a bronze statue of Juliet , the metal of its (her) breast worn bare due to a legend that if a person strokes the right breast of the statue, that person will have good fortune and luck in love. There is a small courtyard and Juliet’s Balcony….it can be very crowded. Go eat at the “Ristorante Arche” , a good family Restaurant , a bit expensive with great food “one of my best Resataurants”.
Our visit kicked off in Bologna – Italy situated in the center Northern parts of Italy. The city has portico-ed sidewalks , great cuisine and and some amazing Architecture. At the Piazza Maggiore you can see the “unfinished facade”of the Basilica of San Petronio. If you feel very energetic you can climb the stairs of the Portico of San Luca which has more than 600 arches and is 3.8 km long. It ends at the top at the Sanctuary of the Madonna of San Luca.
Then there is also Maranello , home of Ferrari. It was always a great dream for me to visit , because I am an avid Formula 1 supporter. And I collect model cars from Ferrari. It is a bit touristic , but if you want you can drive some of the newest sport super-cars , or visit the Ferrari museum and a tour to the Ferrari test tract and factory. Sadly you are not allowed to take photos at the factory and you drive in a bus , so you never get out…..
